criminals. louisiana is the latest fed target. consider rick perry, now defending the state's voter i.d. law after texas was sued. or jan brewer fighting the feds after her crackdown on illegals. tim, in each and every case and in other cases just like them, states defy, and then the government pounces. >> so, president obama does not seem to like federalism very much. federalism is the idea that many issues are best handled by states and the federal government should not tell states how to run their business, and you see very good reason in last the voucher program is mostly used by poor black children in failing schools. it helps them get out of the schools and into better schools, and yet the doj comes in and decides, well, this is somehow resegregating the schools because some people are moving out of some school districts into others. they don't have the firsthand knowledge, the knowledge on the ground and it's absurd to say a program helping poor black kid get into better schools in new orleans is discriminatory, but from washington, lawyers, it looks that way. >> neil: the same for ar
